It Was A Laid Back Day!

I was going to quit all my bad habits for the new year, but then I remembered that nobody likes a quitter.

Nothing to do and no plans, a great way to start retirement.  We worked around the house, straightening things up after the busy days of Christmas.  Mary packed up some goodies for her kids, and I ran home to cover up things as the forecast calls for a lot of rain.

I returned about 5:30 PM and helped Mary out for a while before we went to the Rib Trader to have a drink and dine on healthy food.  Yes, we had fried zucchini, boneless chicken wings, and onion rings.

After getting home, Mary made some cookies and found a new way to decorate them!

Clever lady!

Spending time with Miss Mary is plain fun, and I am at her home enough to know what to assist her with when she asks. It’s comforting.

We did NOT talk to any kids today as I decided to give them the day off. We watched some TV and talked about our New Year’s resolutions.  I may have misunderstood what she was saying.

We did talk about being retired, and I reminded her of what work was like.  Boeing and the VA were all managed by mismanagers; it was pretty pathetic.  It wasn’t that was 30-40 years ago, but everything has to change; I wish it were for the better!

Boeing was the same way!

Mary was ready to crash, and I headed back to Rossmoor.  About midnight, Mary called as it was thundering and lightning.  She wanted to make sure I was not afraid and hiding under the bed.  I fooled her; I was locked in the guest bathroom!  It was doing the same in Rossmoor.  Tomorrow we are doing chores, and I am going to the doctor to figure out what’s up with the knee.

The punchline for today was, we did nothing!  You know what? Nothing is OK to do!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I am involved seriously with a long-time friend, Mary, and life goes on.
